An experienced skydiver jumped to his death from a plane in July 2017 after telling his wife in a final message that he was not going to pull the cord on his parachute.

Vitantonio Capotorto, 27, recorded a video telling Costansa Litellini he was "going somewhere wonderful" before killing himself by leaping from a height of 13,500ft.

His wife, 25, rushed to the skydiving centre in DeLand, Florida, and begged staff to stop her husband diving.

An employee radioed the plane's pilot but Mr Capotorto had already jumped.

Police searched for him from the sky and the ground before his body was found in an open field near to DeLand Municipal Airport, where the centre is based.

Investigators then learned of the disturbing final message. In the video, Mr Capotorto told his wife he was going to jump out of a plane on Tuesday but "not going to pull the cord and that he was going somewhere wonderful".

Skydive DeLand manager Mike Johnton told the Daytona Beach News-Journal that Mr Capotorto's wife arrived "moments too late" to stop the jump.

The body of the young man was taken for autopsy and photographed. We posted his autopsy set in 2018 and some of you may remember him but we didn't know his identify back then.

I hope he didn't regret his decision, we all get to choose how we want to end it, Of course if somebody or something chooses for us.
